Congratulations to @beck, who presented her PhD Proposal today, passed with flying colors, and has now become a PhD Candidate!
Congrats to @beck. Hope to welcome you to the “academy” in the near future!
Thanks @JohnAtl – I’m honored you attended and appreciate the shoutout!
Way to go @beck!

No one is asking the important question: what’s the research on?!
PPS: how do I get my academic colleagues to (1) like Macs, (2) become “power users”, (3) join this forum, and (4) be as nice as @JohnAtl?
Congratulations! Now the fun begins!
Congratulations! Very cool.
Congratz! Very well done!
Good question! More on all that here: https://www.becktench.com/dissertation
That’s an interesting field of study.
Them illustrations! Gotta love when a presentation is more than bulleted lists and tables. Looks great, and the topic is a clever intersection of several important issues/areas.
Congratulations! And more congratulations! (to satisfy the minimum reply length)
@beck what tools do you use to prepare the graphics, the video, and edit them together for the final product you posted to YouTube? It is so refreshingly not-academic.
LOL, I’ll take that as a compliment!
I use Goodnotes on my iPad for the drawings and I lasso them and copy and paste with Universal Clipboard into whatever presentation software I’m using (varies: Keynote, PPT, Slides). To create the video, I used Screenflow while in Powerpoint presentation mode. I prefer Keynote for creating slides, but PPT behaves better with Zoom and the defense was over Zoom.
Side note: I’ve been making slides this way for over 10 years. I used to draw in my sketchbook and scan on a printer, then I used JotNot, then the iPad came along and I never went back. When I look at older presentations, though, there’s a carefulness and finesse to the paper drawings that isn’t there with the iPad ones, but the ease of use is really hard to beat.
